If this is some basic question I am sorry, but I coudn't find solution.

I am trying to create bussines letter with first page header and footer different. Since I don't know if letter is going to have more then one page, I would like to be able to delete all other pages (breaks) and to keep first page as it is. Right now when I delete page break, second page header/footer design becomes first page.

Is it possible to do this or is there another way of creating different header/footer on first page without page breaks?

Thanks for help.

    Create the Normal Header and Footer for all pages then You can use Different First Page and create The First page Header and Footer no need to delete page breaks – yass Jun 3 '17 at 19:13
  • And I was wondering why something simple as that can not be done I guess I was fixated on page break solution. Thank you. – Jovica Jun 4 '17 at 6:12

Each section can have up to three different headers and three footers - for even pages, odd pages, and special ones for the first page. To enable different header and footer for the first section page, you can use the Header & Footer Tools -> Design -> Options-> Different First Page checkbox (this is in the contextual ribbon tab opened when you double-click on a header or footer).
